Why you should wear neutral colors

Neutral colored clothing are an essential  for building a woman’s wardrobe as they can match any other item in your closet. Further more,  Neutral  clothing  add  sophistication and elegance to an outfit.

The neutral colors are: Black, navy, gray, brown, khaki and white (and their tints and shades.)

Nevertheless, beige, cream, gray, ivory or white are not so easy to wear. These light tints emphasis  the paleness of the the face, which is generally not so flattering for your features. Therefore, learning how to mix and match neutral with other statement pieces from your wardrobe is vital in order to look stylish and chic.

I like wearing neutral colors in two ways:                                                                                    1- layering different shades of neutrals. A warm brown skirt will work well with other neutrals, such as creamy tops or black layering.  A light cream dress, paired with buttery brown cardigan or vest will create a great effect when combined with  neutral shoes.                                                                                            

 2- Combining neutrals with bold, bright colors.  In this instance, the neutrals serve as a background color to my statement piece as well as adding a toning down affect to the excitement of a dramatic color.

Try  experimenting with neutrals! They add a lot of versatility to your wardrobe. Don’t fall into the rut of wearing the same color combinations over and over again.

    Gorgeous look, Sara. Neutral tones, especially when they are of a silky fabric like your beautiful top, are always very elegant.

  3. Neutral colour look classy and stylish on you, and work with your colouring. But probably any colour looks good on you… I am experimenting with neutral accessories, but I would never subject my scandinavian pale face ro beige clothing… It is not a good look, you wouldn’t be able to distinguish me grom the wall…

    • Hi Tina, thanks for commenting. Some neutral colors can be tricky for pale skinned people, but as I showed in the example above black, navy, gray, and browns on all their shades are also neutrals… experiment with those, Sara
